LACONIA, N.H. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A home burglary in Laconia, New Hampshire, resulted in a weird family reunion of sorts. A wild black bear broke into a house and fled with a stuffed teddy bear after making his rounds for other random loot. The animal – who walked into the home through an open door by the kitchen – also ate two pears, some grapes, and even drank water from a fishbowl during the bizarre break-in.

LAPORTE, Ind. – Apparently, cops have to pay money to arrest people now. A sheriff’s sergeant in Laporte, Indiana, was left in total shock after he was forced to pay a $5 admission fee to get into the local county fair so he could make an arrest. The cop was there to take a criminal into custody, but gate attendants insisted he had to cough up the $5 bucks to get in just like everyone else.

BREGENZ, Austria – Brewers in Austria have come up with a cheesy way to improve boozers’ sex lives: Lace their beer with cheese. They’ve just introduced a new cheese-infused brew that supposedly helps sexual performance. The downside? It leaves drinkers with gnarly cheese breath.

BRIGNOLES, France – In the tourist town of Brignoles, France, contraceptives are for the birds. The city is plagued with a pigeon infestation, so they’ve started feeding the bothersome birds grain spiked with contraceptives so they stop breeding. By getting rid of the disease-ridden pigeons, they’re hoping to attract more visitors.
